Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney animated feature, The Hunchback of Notre Dame showcases the film’s Academy Award-nominated score, as well as new songs by Menken Mayand Schwartz. Peter Parnell’s new book embraces story theatre and features verbatim passages from Hugo’s gothic novel.

The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be “Out There,” observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful Romani woman, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the Roma – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all.

Ticket prices:
Adults $23, Children 18 and under, Seniors 65 and over and active duty military: $18

Tartuffe, presented by MAD, Apr 30, Online

Tartuffe, presented by MAD, Apr 30, Online

Goddard’s Music and Drama Club presents:
An online public reading of:
By Molière
Directed by Randy Barth

Saturday, April 30, 2022, 8pm, live online

Location: Goddard Space Flight Center’s MAD Theater, online.

Molière was a poet and Tartuffe was written in verse in French. We will use the English translation available at Project Gutenberg which is also in verse. This will be an interesting departure for us from past works, though when you think about it, it is somewhat like musical theater. It will be a new challenge but once again our goal is to have fun participating.

Performance will be live online. Click here.
